~ A podcast for crocheters, knitters, and alpaca owners ~
Welcome to Episode 3 of the Butterfield Alpacas & Fiber Arts Podcast! I’m Tashia Butterfield, an alpaca rancher, crochet instructor, knitter, and fiber artist of anything alpaca. In this episode, I discuss the recent attack on the American alpaca industry by Arizona’s Senator Flake, the difference between the two alpaca breeds, how to make dryer balls, and my favorite knitting and crochet books.
